Transfer Deadline Day, not much nonesense yet: Dimitar Berbatov providing the most amusement so far, flying to Italy but returning to England without meeting anyone from Fiorentina after the move was hijacked by Juventus and the player instead signing instead for Fullham. And of course from that same club Clint Dempsey still sits and waits, spurning offers from Aston Villa and Sunderland in hopes that Liverpool or Arsenal will yet come in for him. Mancini has been busy on the blue side of Manchester, selling notorious chest-stomper Nigel de Jong to a vastly changed AC Milan and buying Scott Sinclair and a some would say past his sell by date Maicon. Liverpool have done some business, selling Charlie Adam to Stoke (who also brought in American Maurice Edu) and loaning Jay Spearing to Bolton, after loaning(?!?!?!) lost boy Andy Carroll to West Ham last night.

In the least surprising news ever, Rafa van der Vaart moved to Hamburg. When he signed with Spurs his wife Sylvie van der Vaart stayed in Germany.

Everytime I see mention of Maicon now I'm reminded of this :

If Bale's not injured Maicon's going to need therapy the week before City face Spurs.

Um, Craven Cottage may be right by the river, but it's not Sarf Lahndan.

You know what these cabbies are like with a tourist in the back.
